SOMETHING this ever growing side needs to remember is they have people all over the pitch capable of producing goals. In a hard fought NE14HOCKEY East Div 2 North game with derby rivals IES chances would always be few and far between, but would be created.
The first half was probably edged by the away side, and a goal being disallowed late for encroaching the 'D' seemed harsh. However 0-0 at half time was a base to build on from with no goals conceded.
The second half didn't go Ipswich's way with IES scoring from a short corner. An initial shot saved by Ben Glading, who was an unofficial man of the match, was well put away by Kev Brown. Ben also saving well from a suicidal pass from Robin Swindon, to an IES forward at the top of the 'D'.
As the game moved on the good ball play and movement seemed to be taking its toll on the IES side, and with fifteen minutes to go up stepped the captain sam Gibson to capitalise on some great play by Toby Lever and the Ipswich midfield.

With away spirits lifted and IES's dampened, it was 5 minutes later that an ever improving Josh Godfrey produced a fantastic piece of individual skill. Picking up the ball from James Boutell near his own halfway line, Fry started to side step player after player before calmly slipping the ball past a befuddled goalkeeper.
There was no way back from here for the home side and a hard fought but deserved victory was earned. Ipswich are up to fourth and looking to climb!!
